Hello Guyz,

I am facing problems with roof leakage for the last 3 months. So, I want to know about all types of roof leakage solutions like common causes of roof leaks, where is the roof leaking from, and how to fix them.

If anybody has an idea about this then contribute your solutions here.

Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum.

 

The proper installation of a new roofing system will have overlapped joints and flashing that all work together to prevent long term leaks.

 

The identification / repair of existing leaks requires investigation to locate failed or improperly installed components.

 

My house had a long term very intermittent leak issue where the final roofing contractor said rip off / replace the entire roof was the only solution to fix a leak at one spot, but that answer was not sufficient for me. I excavated all the roofing tar from the problematic spot until I reached the problem, that was caused by someone dumping a tube of silicone sealant during the initial installation under all the roofing material. Nothing was sticking to the silicone and it wasn't sticking to anything. All that silicone was dug out and replaced w/ roofing tar and it has been leak free for many years.

 

Why not provide info / photos that permit others to assist w/ the specific problem?

I am going to offer you a very Altanic solution :) Make your house with reinforced concrete and go for stainless steel roof and forget about roof repairs and maintenance for at least 100 years. :))
